looks like you need to roll back drivers. and/or force update all drivers.

 

it's funny, normally this happens to me when i install new OSs on old old hardware. e.g; wifi card built for xp and i have win7 installed.

Try to pull out the power, and put it back in. See if it helps.

 

Okay, pulled it out of Yahoo answers, hope it's something haha:

 


This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system. 
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive. 
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods. 
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode. 
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error. 
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk. 
Boot your computer with that disk 
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios. 
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom. 
Then save settings and exit bios. 
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom. 
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.." 
Then press any key. 
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r" 
Then type "y" 
Then it fix error on hard drive. 
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.

 

Try this.

I have just one thing to say, why the hell did you buy 32GB of ram? That's a total waste of money should've just bought an i7

 

and try just using either kit in dual channel first. you might have just got a DOA dimm

Have you tried clearing your CMOS?

To me it sounds like the boot sector might be corrupt. You could try a repair of the OS from the install media, then get your important files back, then do a clean install of the OS.

It a driver problem with graphics. Simply roll it back, and see if you can find a more stable driver for your GPU.

You do not know what he does. LTT computers run 32GB and even 64GB, and I don't hear you complaining about that?

That's because they need it, they edit videos and tons of other productivity apps. Meanwhile OP has an i5 and 32GB of ram if you were going to be editing videos getting an i5 and 32GB of RAM would be bonkers. An i7 and 16GB kit would've been much better.

 

Get your facts straight. You probably don't do any video editing or not familiar with it. Ignorance is such a bliss

Fair enough. Everyone has methods to their madness :)
